The result of Monday evening’s 6:30 p.m. home game against Wilson will determine whether the Hood River Valley High School varsity boys lacrosse team calls it quits for the season or moves on to the Oregon High School Lacrosse Association state championship. The boys, 7-8 on the season and 2-3 in league after a 13-10 win Tuesday against Grant and a 17-0 loss Thursday at Lincoln, will not only need a win next week to prolong their season, they’ll have to score at least eight goals and keep Wilson to two goals or less in order to earn enough league points to carry on.
The two teams met earlier this season in a non-league matchup in which the Eagles won a hard-fought 8-6 home game and both teams are essentially fighting for their lives in the final game of the season, so Monday’s game should be a battle.
Taylor Cramer, Tony Cohn and Brendan Kerr led the team Tuesday against Grant with two goals each, while Trenton Gallagher, Forrest Broddie, Jesse Lee, Torsenn Brown, Marcus Crouch, Austin Keillor and Kiel Sorenson all had one.
